Rioters outside the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

The clock is ticking on the House Jan. 6 committee.

With the midterm elections a little more than a month away and control of the House uncertain, experts are beginning to wonder what the endgame is for the investigation, even as Hurricane Ian postponed the ninth, and perhaps last, public hearing.

By most accounts, the committee’s efforts thus far have proven more successful than anticipated in both unearthing new evidence and drawing attention to the role of former President Trump in enflaming the violence at the Capitol.

The question now becomes, what kinds of recommendations will the committee make to shore up democratic institutions in the U.S.? And will they push for criminal charges against Donald Trump?

Quinta Jurecic is a fellow in governance studies at the Brookings Institution and a senior editor at Lawfare. She joined Diane to talk about what the committee has learned so far, and what we might expect to see in the coming weeks.
